One of my favorite Paris hotels is not in Paris!

That’s right. One of my favorite hotels in Paris isn’t actually in Paris, but rather the Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle airport!

Huh?

Yes, seriously, the Sheraton Paris Airport Hotel.

Now, I know there are many fabulous hotels in and if you want to know where to stay in Paris, check out this post, it is pretty definitive! But, when flying back to the U.S. from Paris, the flights are generally in the morning, between 7 and 11 a.m. Getting to the airport from Paris takes an hour, sometimes more. So my husband and I have found that we like to stay the night before our departure at the Sheraton at the airport.

Yep, IN the airport! We don’t have to get up extra early, struggle with our suitcases, sit an hour plus in traffic only to then check in for an 11-hour flight (if you are going to the West Coast).

Instead we arrive the night before, in the early evening after a last day in Paris, check into the stunning Sheraton (seriously, it is just gorgeous) have a nice dinner at any number of restaurants in the airport or the one at the Sheraton, relax at the bar, check-in for our flight online using their free internet (if you use one of their lovely stations in their lobby, or if you use the SPG lounge), and sleep in a little longer in the morning without any worries of rushing – you cannot beat that!

Located in Terminal 2 (map here) above the train station, the Sheraton is a really, really nice hotel. It is designed on the inside to look like a cruise ship (you can even see down into the train station from the upper floors); has stunning rooms; and a really good breakfast buffet. And even though you are IN the airport with planes landing and taking off right in front of your window, you will not hear a THING!

Tip: Some airlines will let you check in your bags the night before and give you your boarding pass. Then all you need is a change of clothes (the Sheraton provides a nice range of toiletries, etc.) which you can have in a carry-on and you can sleep in even more, or have a leisurely breakfast until boarding time because your bags are already checked; you have boarding pass in hand and you just have to go through security, and immigration. You arrive at the gate relaxed and ready to be zen for the long flight home. The Sheraton will also drive you to your terminal in their private car service if you request it (no charge!).

My husband and I have done this for years and it works for us!

There are other hotels around CDG airport, but honestly it is a bit of a pain to get to the airport in the morning, most do not have shuttles so you need a taxi, or walk in the underground tunnels to the tram to your terminal, up and down escalators or stairs hoping the elevators are working with your luggage. Trust me, for an efficient and stressfree last night before your flight, you want to stay at the Sheraton at CDG airport!

How about you? Have any tips for preparing for a flight home from Paris, or any other pre-flight tips? Do share!
